I was born on a farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina....Early fascination with camera at about 8 years old...I loved chronicling life events.... Still my main fascination, after trying weddings, babies, studio and commercial I found my passion with food and chefs! I have creative certification in Adobe suite, graphic design and food styling. I enjoy the freedom I get to have with my camera being an exclusive artist with iStockphoto and I live in one of the most wonderful cities, San Diego, CA right on the water where each sunrise and sunset blow my mind... no matter how many times I see them, I can't fire off enough shots to freeze that moment in time. I have two "model" dobermans who love the camera and amazing network around good EATS! Sweet!
